- When designing your electronics, use a professional supplier such as Farnell, Digi-Key, Mouser. Make sure to filter out non-RoHS components when picking components.
- While not strictly necessary for prototypes that you won't sell, it's probably a good idea to do use only RoHS components from the start.
- When getting ready to sell your product, gather documents for each component in your product. Look for something like this:
If a certificate is not available, the supplier should be able to retrieve the certificate for you. You can e.g. email farnell at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a certificate in case of a missing or outdated one. There are also several different solutions for collecting certificates, creating reports, etc automatically.
- Make sure to store the documents safely. There is only a theoretical chance that your supplier will stop hosting them, but you are legally obliged to have the documentation available.
- That's all!
